It’s a good thing no NFL team actually has LaRon Landry on its roster, because it wouldn’t be getting very much for its investment. According to multiple reports, the free agent safety was suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Tuesday — this after just coming off of a 10-game suspension to start the season.
It is unclear at the moment what caused the new suspension, but Landry’s previous punishment was for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The 31-year-old was also given a four-game suspension in 2014 for PED use, and photos had begun to circulate showing him looking jarringly rocked-up.
A star at LSU, Landry was taken sixth overall by the Redskins in the 2007 draft, ahead of players such as Adrian Peterson, Patrick Willis, Marshawn Lynch and Darrelle Revis (sorry, Washington fans). After moving to the Jets in 2012, Landry became a Pro Bowl selection, but he failed to impress during the next two years with the Colts.
Indianapolis released Landry before news emerged of his 10-game suspension, and now there’s a chance that his NFL career may be over. In 103 games over seven seasons, Landry accumulated 616 tackles and six interceptions.
